    Frost Bike 50 in Houston

    The Frost Bike 50 here in Houston is this Sunday, Jan. 20th. I am looking for a more detailed map other than the one that is on the event's website. Is anyone riding it this weekend and if so, do you have a course map? I am sure that one will be available at the packet pick up on Friday, but I would like to get one earlier than then.

    Go to Northwest Cycling Club's facebook page and post the question. I believe it is the same route from last year so you could search mapmyride.com or strava.com for maps of the route. Or contact the event promoter through the e-mail link provided on the registration page.

    Actually the map for the 2013 routes are embedded in the background of the Active.com registration page (map below):

    I wish this ride turned put better than it did. I was going to ride the 55 mile route, but after they cancelled that route due to the fog and time I decided to leave.

    Did anyone else on this forum make the ride for the shorter distances? I believe they said that those who wanted to do those two rides would have to wait an extra hour (due to fog) putting the start time at 11:30 (when originally it was for 8:00).

    Yes, I rode the longest route they supported, which was 47 miles. The start time was a little after 10:30. This is a decent ride, not one of the area's very best, but well worth doing. The organizers and volunteers do a nice job, and it's one of the first rides of the year. Unfortunately the route includes some major thoroughfares, and because of this year's delay there was a good bit of traffic by the time the ride came through. I'll be back next year.
